I was lucky to get a sample of this tea with my recent TeaGschwendner order and it is an excellent specimen of a First Flush Darjeeling indeed. The sample was kinda on the smaller side but I enjoyed it immensely till the very last drop.
The tea tastes lighter than average FF Darjeeling, even subtle I would say but is extremely well balanced, with a lot of flowery and muscatel notes and just the right amount of astringency. Some dry metallic notes are present as well but are not overpowering at all. And the most important for me is that the brew doesn’t have any sweetness or nuttiness to it which makes it very refreshing to drink.
The price is steep but the tea is well worth it.
